Early 90s, my Dad and Auntie surprised me and my bro with tickets to Rangers vs Aberdeen. Seeing the red bricks for the first time, gazing up at the ground as we approached. My Dad and Auntie laughing

1957 ..Queens Park ...in the Scottish First Division.

Driving past Ibrox has brought me goosebumps my entire life. I can't explain it.

First game was 1986 aged 4... I remember being lifted over the turnstiles to get in by my da and how bone chilling cold it was in the East enclosure. Didn’t stop me shouting cmon Rangers all game but I didn’t have a clue what was going on... instantly hooked🇬🇧

Rangers v Dunfermline 1968 Orjan Perrson scored two goals I was 7 years of age remember getting asked did I want a glossy team group photo or one of John Greig, needless to say John Greig was my favourite player and still is👍

was that the game where Perrson scored direct from a corner kick in front of the Shed?

My first game was a reserve v Clyde about 1969 ,and one of their players had what looked like a big ginger affro with some calling him Little Mary Quite Contrary . The only player I remember was Eric Sorensen.  

Went to another reserve game v c....c on a Wednesday night because Jim Baxter was playing . Only time I got to see him in the flesh and the game ended 1-1 . 

First big game was about 1970 against Hearts on a Wednesday night where we won 3-2 after being 3 goals up . 

One of the things I remember was all the old codgers in the Main stand stamping their feet anytime we got a corner .

First Gers game was 82 against Aberdeen. Gubbed 3 0. However my first game at Ibrox was a Scotland Wales under 21s a few months earlier, sitting in brown section of the Govan which iirc Scotland won 1 0. Rangers starlet Iain Ferguson, not of 9iar fame, scored the winner. 

The Ian Ferguson of blonde streak fame

My first memories are going with my dad on a supporters bus from Kilmarnock in around 1969, I can remember standing on empty beer cans to see game, the wee blue bubble cars at the back of the goals, my dad used to lift me over the turnstile, we used to have a sweep on the bus, hated if I picked an opposition number. Can still remember getting Eric Sorenson autograph at front doors.

Ossasuna, 1985/86 season. Bus journey from Haddington took fuckin ages. Spent the last 3 miles literally asking "are we there yet". Into the East Enclosure just as kick off happened. Place was rammed and I was near the back. Saw fuck all of the pitch until Paterson scored about 15 minutes into the second half....Absolute bedlam! Ended up near the front. Lost everyone I was with, and only found them again when everyone left at the end of the game! Fuckin loved it!! :thumbsup:

The rain that night was of biblical proportions. Big Wallace said after the game it was like the monsoons in the jungle.

That's right.....I remember now being relatively sheltered at the back of the enclosure but getting fuckin drenched when we scored!! :lol: Probably why it was so rammed at the back!

Going to my first game with my dad, uncle and cousin, and standing in what was the Derry shed and later became the centenary stand.  I think it was against Kilmarnock sometime around 1962/63. Never realised then how important The Rangers were to become to me.  Stood with my mates for years in the Derry shed and then moved to the copland Rd. end when the shed was seated.  Now sit in Govan Rear almost on halfway line with my son very near me as well.  It's a family thing and hopefully soon my grandson will join us.

Once a Ranger, always a Ranger.

Think I was about 4.. I lived quite a bit outside of Glasgow at the time but we were down visiting family, so my dad took me on a drive to see it. We stopped and done a walk round and managed to bump in to Richard Gough, who took us into the reception area since it was freezing. Got an autograph and a photo which is still up my mums I think!

My first memory of Ibrox was when my dad was working in Glasgow and living on Copland Road. For my birthday he got us tickets for the Coca-Cola Cup game against Falkirk. We won 4 1, it was a McCoist hattrick if I can recall and a goal by Stensaas. 

All game we had a guy in front of us screaming out fuck off you Falkirk! I fucking loved it. It was my first ever game too. 

My dad could only get 1 ticket for the next game and asked if I wanted to go alone. I shite it and said no. We got back to his flat later on in the day to see that Negri had scored 5 past Dundee United, I was gutted I missed it.
